Title: Energy staggering in superdeformed bands in {sup 131}Ce, {sup 132}Ce, and {sup 133}Ce

Abstract

Superdeformed bands observed in {sup 131}Ce, {sup 132}Ce, and {sup 133}Ce have sequences of {gamma}-ray transition energies that exhibit a {Delta}{ital I}=2 staggering. This staggering has different characteristics to that seen in previously known cases in other mass regions. The energy staggering starts at low rotational frequency ({sq_bullet}{omega}=3 MeV for {sup 131}Ce) at a magnitude of {approximately}{plus_minus}0.3 keV, dies away to zero at intermediate frequency ({sq_bullet}{omega}=0.6{minus}0.7 MeV), and reappears at higher frequencies ({sq_bullet}{omega}{approximately}0.7 MeV). {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
